October 06, 2009|Times Wire Reports

A suicide bomber killed at least six mourners at a funeral for a member of a prominent tribe with ties to both security forces and insurgents in western Iraq, a police official said.

The bomber detonated an explosives belt inside a funeral tent in the mostly Sunni area of Haditha, about 130 miles northwest of Baghdad. At least 15 people were injured.

The funeral was for a member of the Jaghaifa tribe, which is split between members of the police and military and supporters of the Sunni insurgency.
